How to access LOROS services
LOROS offers specialised care for patients over the age of 18 with complex needs who are suffering from a terminal illness when cure is no longer possible. It also offers support for their families and carers.
Patients are accepted from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Referrals are generally made by a GP, hospital consultant or hospital palliative care team, or are facilitated by a community nurse specialist.
Patients eligible for referral are usually suffering from advanced cancer or other life-limiting conditions, eg Motor Neurone Disease (MND), heart failure or respiratory disease.
All of our services are free of charge to all patients based upon clinical need.
